Competency Management

If you are responsible for training in a high risk and high consequence environment, you want to run a consistent, professional training system that keeps people safe and helps them do their jobs well.

Competency is a core component of measuring employee and organisational effectiveness. In our view, competence isn’t just knowledge and understanding of the technical aspects of the role; the measurement of competency needs to consider the hazards and characteristics of the plant and equipment they are working with, working practices, and any associated codes of practice and legislation. Competence is also about how an employee reacts to any given situation and what sort of behavioural attributes to apply.

Competency Standards

Helping you identify, and train to, the standards of performance you need to get jobs done well.

Competency Standards are a key foundational piece for the effective management of skills in the Electricity Supply and Rail industries. They serve as a documented and clear measure of expected performance against which competence can be identified and assessed, enabling your organisation’s management team to meaningfully assess competency of staff and ensure training and assessment are targeted to producing a competent workforce.

Many of us in industry rely on the AQF competency units to form the basis of our own competency standards. Whether you are wholly reliant on the AQF competency units, or unable to find competency standards within this system that suit the needs of specialist roles in your business, Thomson Bridge can help you set, implement, and get the most out of the competency standards that most effectively support your business.

If you use the AQF Standards, our training professionals can help you get the most out of them, through contextualisation, mapping to your training materials, and rigorous assessment processes.

And for those with specialist skills not covered by the AQF, we can assist to develop standards that specify the level of performance and define what a competent individual would do in terms of observable outputs or behaviours against functions. Our L&D specialists have analysed and implemented many successful initiatives to establish competency standards to meaningfully assess competency of personnel and underwrite a competent workforce.

Competency Lifeclycle Model

We help organisations go beyond the standard training needs analysis to develop training plans that up your game from having a list of training for each role, to actively managing competency according to the employee and business lifecycle.

If your training matrix starts and ends with the minimum of what an employee needs to be in the work team, you may be missing a lot of the value that truly managing competency can provide.

Thomson Bridge develops competency lifecycle models to assist clients implement more holistic approaches to identifying and delivering training and competency needs.
